Lyrics


Accidental Date

(Polly Edwards)

This song is based on true events that happened to... er, these friends of mine. Yeah, friends. Definitely not to me and my roommate Emily. No sirree. This song is dedicated to Emily, for no reason whatsoever. Names have been changed to protect the overly innocent.

Paula goes out to the movies
With a friend she's known for years
Nothing weird about it
Picks her up and drives her there
Then sits real close beside her
Pays for snacks and when she argues
He won't talk about it

She thinks this is a little odd
But hey, whatever
Then he tries to buy her dinner too
And tells her she's been his favourite friend forever
Uh oh

What's this? What's happening?
Something's just not right
You've never cared about my day before
And now you're telling me I look nice in this shirt
Then the Mack truck hits her
Oh my God, I'm on a date

Emma loves Beethoven
Choir guy's got extra tickets
Nothing weird about it
Picks her up and drives her there
They're all alone together
Afterwards he takes her arm
To lead her out and

She thinks this is a little odd
But hey, whatever
Then he tries to buy her dinner too
And tells her she's been his favourite singer forever
Uh oh

What's this? What's happening?
Something's just not right
You've hardly spoken to me before
And now you're asking for my phone number
Then the Mack truck hits her
Oh my God, I'm on a date

What are you supposed to do
When you've come this far without a clue
"Look, I'm sorry" is hard to say
And it's not like you can tell him to just go away
You're a good friend, but
You're real nice, but
This is fun, but
It's just an accidental date
I'm on an accidental date
I hate those accidental dates
